UAF is a hotbed of all three — where everyone has a story to tell, where nature in its relentless grandeur brings true perspective, and where innovation reigns supreme. Venture outside the classroom, where fieldwork really is in the field — and in the forest, ocean, or any of the rugged terrain that makes up Alaska’s vast, natural laboratory. Around here, if you’re game, you’re in. Even undergrads work one-on-one with world-class faculty on advanced research.
This is where theory meets practice, and where hands-on experience gets its place in the sun.
The Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity office exists to support, develop and institutionalize UAF's diverse and robust programs of undergraduate research and creative scholarship.
The UA Scholars Award is an $12,000 scholarship which can cover eligible expenses such as undergraduate tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies and other educational costs associated with going to a UA school.
